Positive Thursday – Set Backs


Henry Ford

Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, And we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward!

 The strong are unaware of giving up.  They continue to proceed toward their objectives and goals. They push each day with a purpose and a belief that they can accomplish.  In the process they are aware that there is momentary defeat and failure.  The most successful people in the world are also the people that have failed the most.  This is the natural part of striving and moving onward.  This defines your character by how you proceed once you fall or fail. 

When you hit that set back do not be discourage, learn and be successful.

 Colin Powell

In other words, don’t expect to always be great.  Disappointments, failures, and set backs are normal part of the life cycle of a unit or company and what the leader has to do is constantly be up and say ‘we have a problem, let’s go and get it’.
